COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This crisp refreshing rye IPA is the latest installment in our Repo Man soundtrack series. The toasty rye flavor is nicely balanced with a floral, spicy hop aroma to make one potent yet drinkable ale.

Refrigerated brown bomber, free beer won during free beer week from tooch4321, poured into a snifter. Pours nice clear deep golden (light orange) with very small white head, and little lacing. Medium body, low carbonation, and slightly syrupy texture. Taste is floral, spicy hop, some rye, and finish is grapefruit.

Draft to pint. Looks solid; a transparent tangerine with sticky off-white lacing. Smells and tastes of hops, pale malt, and spice with a nice rye flavor and tingle. A good example of the style.

An ode to Black Flag (cue the bass line, Hank ready on the mic)... íTV party tonight! TV party tonight! TV party tonight!í Okay, so thatís out of the way... this is a bomber, pours clear, a lighter shade of amber, thin white head that disappeared faster than punk rock after heroin became the drug of choice... nose is candied orange, a hint of pine, malt (average). Mouth is surprisingly bigger than the nose -- medium bodied, hoppy pine bitterness up front mingled with some malt, rye spiciness, bready notes, then a whole lot of bitterness that lingers and fades out with a subtle oakiness. Drinkable, but I donít think Gregg Ginn and Chuck Dukowski would approve. ;-)

Solid RPA. Citrus hops are prominent with a gritty spice rye flavor, mouthfeel is moderate and slightly slick. medium carbonation. grapefruit on the finish especially.

22oz bottle, shared by tmoney99. Clear tangerine orange color. Thin off-white head. Little lace. Good citrusy hop nose. some grapefruit citrus hops. Lightly spicy hop. Zesty, light bitter taste. Rye is in check, not too big, well blended. Nothing too exciting, but a solid rye IPA.

I donít get the allure. . . as with most of the Revolution brews. This one just doesnít seem Rye enough or IPA enough to be a Rye IPA. Yellowish copper color; slight carbonation; watery mouth feel; dry finish-- none of it makes the type of bold impact you would expect. There is a clear predominant bitterness. But it seems one dimensional and simplistic. On the plus side, you do get some hop flavor, and itís somewhat drinkable because itís not "too big." But who wants a Rye IPA thatís not too big?
